Get Well Soon Lou

Hi everyone, it's Rob, Lou's silent other half. I thought that this would be the best way to inform all of the regular readers of the Garlics blog that Lou is back in hospital again. She was discharged last Friday and had made good progress in her recovery over the weekend, enjoying time with the kids and a couple of family meals. However she started to feel ill again on Monday and was rushed back to hospital with an infection and what turned out to be pneumonia. She is currently on the high dependency unit at the Leeds General Infirmary and is making steady progress, however it will be some time before she will be back home. Please send Louise all of your get well thoughts.

I would like to thank everyone who has text and called over the last few days with messages of support and offers of help for me and the kids, it is greatly appreciated and I'm sorry if I haven't replied to you all yet. Carol, Phil, Gemma, Lauren and Mark, thank you for all of the help in the last couple of weeks.

Lets all hope Louise is back soon to provide you all with a proper blog....

Rob, Emily & Xander.

So, It's Been A While...

Well, I'm home! After 2 weeks and countless 'procedures' I'm finally back to my own bed and my little munchkins. I don't really have the energy to write out the full story just yet, I just wanted to come on and say 'Hi!' and thank everyone for all their love and support over the past couple of weeks. Whether it's been texts, cards, quiches (hey, some people just get me!), books, magazines, babysitting, filling up the freezer or a quick visit to check on how I was; so many people have been wonderful in not only supporting me, but Rob and the kids too.

Like I say, I'll write more later; I just needed to say THANK YOU!

University Of Disney

Whilst revising the other day, I glanced over and caught this sight:

Is Mickey Mouse really giving out degrees now? And will my exam be on the songs of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse? I can see a First coming my way if so!
Just had to share, if anything sums up my life at the moment it's this picture: coffee, 3rd year English text books, glossary of English grammar...and a toddler's book!!

Get Well Soon Kay!

Oh no! After having a lovely afternoon with Kay and Scott on Sunday, she's only gone and ended up in hospital (jokes about Rob's cooking in the comment box please)! Poor thing has a blood clot on her lung and was taken in by ambulance on Monday. Thankfully she's OK and is already demanding her laptop and questioning why you can only have 2 glasses of wine a day on Warfarin, but it's still a bit of a shocker!

For those of you that don't know Kay, she has the same heart condition as me, so blood clots ain't good news; thankfully though they're treating it and she'll be fine (if the woman listens and slows down; no 6am gym sessions for a while, you hear me young lady!).

Anyway, as Kay is a regular blog reader, and hopefully she'll not be doing too much work from her hospital bed and having a bit of a surf, here's something to cheer you up buddy:
